Paul Devore – Self-Esteem

A person who has Tourette’s Syndrome (a neurological syndrome involving involuntary tics) talks about how it has affected his life and ways that he hasn’t let it affect his life. He shares tools to shore up self-esteem, and says, “I think a large part of my success is actually linked to my having Tourette Syndrome.” A speaker with a very positive attitude with messages that can be useful for anyone.
